Friends of Hartlebury Common
 Welcome to the website of Hartlebury Common Local Group
Hartlebury Common is situated on the edge of Stourport on Severn and is owned and managed by Worcestershire County Council. As a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) it is one of the few remaining examples of lowland heath in the county. There are many rare plants and animals found on this threatened habitat.
The aim of this website is to provide information about Hartlebury Common Local Group and to help all visitors better understand the common and its wide variety of flora and fauna, and therefore enjoy their visits even more.
